Subject: Pure magic -
Thanks soooo much, Mr. HS, for this gorgeous matrix - it helps evoke Jerry's vocals so beautifully and deeply - the band sounds like they're singing from the absolute top of Mt. Everest.
This is one of those shows that seems thoroughly entwined with some kind of heavy magical voodoo - Jerry in particular is absolutely possessed vocally. Don't know of any show before nor since that has him reaching the way he does - and not just on his own tunes - did you ever think such soul could be evoked from the phrase "one more Saturday night..."?
The *only* caveat I'll throw a red flag up on is St. of Circumstance in the 2nd set. Given the many, MANY jaw-dropping, scorching versions of this Weir mini-epic played in the early-mid-80s, this one seems grotesquely out of place, tired, worn, and slow amidst all of this gorgeousness - really, it's like a deflated balloon. So just jostle right over this one and you'll preserve the illusion :)
Guys, this is the real deal, this show. It's as good as every five-star review says it is and then some. Jerome John Garcia I've never heard sing better than this show in his latter years.
Subject: sounds like a view from the vault
awesome center seat for everyone
Subject: where's Jerry?
guys, I've only now just listened to the first set and Jerry is only partially in this. Keyboards and Bobby are covering for him in Big Country way. Listen to M&MU, Big River and Promise Land. great tunes selection but not getting it, here.
Subject: Good Lord, Sound is perfect!!!
This matrix is the absolute pinnacle of recording type that you want for every show. You can hear all the players loud and clear, you get a taste of the audience, and you get the rumble and 3-d feel of the venue. It's crystalline. The sound on this matrix just /shimmers/.
The show is excellent. Get this matrix if at all possible (there are plenty of sources). Otherwise get the AUD that this is based on--though it is a little crowdy, it contains all the sounds you need to hear from this night, and it's better to hear more sounds than less sounds.
Subject: Dig the '94...
I never met a Hop>Skip>Franklin I didn't like and this one is no exception. The So Many Roads is pretty hot. It really makes me remember how much I miss the good ol' Grateful Dead. Listening to Jerry sing at the end gives me a feeling of melancholy.
They were on it this night. Every song is played well. Strong, strong show.
Oh yeah, the sound on this show is spot on, a perfect mix.
